Starfish for Advisors and Support Staff

Advisors and support staff promote student success by utilizing the Starfish platform, which shows what help and guidance a student might need. 

Starfish provides access to a holistic view of a student, including past advising activity, flags, courses, grades, demographic data, notes, and referrals. Advisors and support staff can refer the student to campus services and keep track to confirm that a recommendation was followed. They can also quickly close the loop by including the student's My Success Network. Advisors and support staff can access communications, interactions, and meetings with students in a secure central location.
